Nose of light fruit and wheat. Lively carbonation, pours a straw color. Light and well-balanced. Citrus notes pack a punch and carry the day. It’s not dry (at all!), and has a nice sweetness to it. One of the better summer beers out there.

BlackHaddock (4672) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 22, 2015
22nd May 2015: bright sunshine on the patio but surrounded my dark thunder clouds here in California (at my daughters). 12oz bottle poured into a Corsendonk badged stemmed tulip glass. Cloudy body with an orange hue to the lemon colour, on top a snow white crown of tight bubbles. highly carbonated, like most beers in this style. Yeasty, citrusy and too cold initially. The wheat comes through very heavily in the flavours and dominated the taste. Refreshing and crisp in nature, but not really my thing. Scored objectively.

adasko (862) - Poznan, POLAND - MAY 19, 2015
Niezbyt przyjemny słowdowy aromat z lekka siarka. Piwo niemal klarowne, złote, kiepska piana, niezły lacing. W smaku lekkie fenole i guma balonowa z przodu. W środku słodowość. Końcówka pusta. Brak posmaku, brak goryczki. Ogólnie mocno średnie.

GenDV138 (2860) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - MAY 17, 2015
4 oz pour on draft at Spacebar. Hazy orangish yellow with off-white head. Aromas of light citrus, wheat, malt. Tastes of citrus, orange peel, light wheat. Medium-light body with a dry finish. Nice easy drinking summer beer.

Beautiful sunny pour with a nice cloudy body. Aromas lacked a bit of the advertised fruitiness but the hoppy flavors on top of the wheat is a great balance.

Light golden color that is cloudy. Very little aroma and very little carbonation where I had it on tap. More of an American style wheat. No banana or clove flavors like a German Wheat. Slight spicy flavor with a bitter finish, though no hop aroma is present.

Draft. Cloudy yellow with short white head and lots of lacing. Aroma is yeast and citrus. Mildly sweet with crisp, bitter finish. Taste of lemon and orange rind. Very nice overall.

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12 oz bottle into a mug. Appearance: The body has a light haze and a nice yellow color. It’s head is bright white, tall and long lasting. It also make some nice lacing on the glass. Smell: I get ligjt notes of sour dough bread, light grain and light grassy hops with a slight citrusy lemon. Taste/Palate: Up front it’s bready with mild citrusy notes moving in. As it finishes more grassy hop bitterness comes out. Overall it’s refreshing and we’ll carbonated.
